The annual Empty Bowls Project is a three-night creative effort to fight hunger in our community. Participants create, paint, and glaze ceramic bowls over the course of three weeks, and then celebrate their work with a delicious soup and bread fundraising dinner. This year, participants enjoyed a variety of soups and breads donated by several local restaurants,
including The Olympic Bakery, The Strip, Kern’s Kitchen, Sisters Restaurant, Smoking Mo’s, and Taylor Shellfish. All proceeds are donated to the Saint’s Pantry Food Bank.

A special thanks to everyone that participated, and to the six local restaurants for generously donating food for the dinner fundraiser. This event would not be possible without their continued support.
